I AM surprised that your Letters Page has not featured any views on the results of the 2011 National Census.
Immigration is one of the most relevant topics for a vast number of UK citizens. None of the major parties will dare to discuss it with voters, but UKIP is thriving due to the figures released. We now live in the most densely populated country in Europe, and the fourth most dense in the world. Only about 40 per cent of our capital city’s population are white English.
There are more than half a million Poles living in London. Yorkshire has, after London, the biggest increase in Asian people living within her boundaries. Soon a vast number of Bulgarians and Romanians will come to live in the UK.
It is almost forbidden to raise concerns about immigration, and trying to get items published or discussed or even thought about is virtually impossible. Christianity has had to take a back seat in the UK, whereas Islam is promoted and is expanding rapidly.
Many of us, I would guess at millions, of English folk have been warning against unchecked immigration for 40 years or more, and now we feel like “foreigners in our own country”. Social tensions will soon lead to social explosions. Enough is enough – we must leave the EU now.
